<p style='text-align: justify;'> A 17th-century paper manuscript of the <i>Haragaurīvivāhanāṭaka</i>, a dramatic piece on the marriage of Śiva and Pārvatī attributed to Rāja Jagajjyotirmalla (1614-1637) of Bhaktapur. The play is in an old form of the Nepali language with stage directions and some verses in Sanskrit. "The piece seems to partake of the nature of an opera; as it contains 55 songs in various modes ('rāgas', e.g. the Mālava-rāga); moreover the colophon <i>koṇe bhāṣā</i> frequently occurs, apparently denoting an instrumental accompaniment or interlude. Besides Çiva and Gaurī, the chief <i>dramatis personae</i> seem to be Gaurī's parents, Himālaya and Menā, and a ṛishi Bhṛingin. The piece is in 10 '<i>sambandhas</i>', the first of which, and part of the second, seem to be missing. (Bendall 1883, 183)."</p>
